When routing starts to flip

Have been using Routing now for close to 10 years. I have seen some improvements but it sure needs lots more TLC.


Just had the following happen :


On openingen a bit of routing I got to see this

Although the FeatureManager only show me 1 Elbow (= Bocht 90°) I can see 7 elbows, and that's including no. 7 (you can see a bit of green from it) which is the only one that should be there.


However, doing an edit route, and nothing else, results in

et voilà : all zombie Elbows disappear.

Notice however that the Route still seem to have an issue according to the FeatureManager. (Yellow triangle)


So lets exit 'edit route' and see what gives.


Nope, no problem. Everything is hunky dory.

Except of course that on the drawing most dimensions are now dangling.

*sigh* Oh well, luckily it's only a small bit of routing.


At least that was novel. Unlike earlier today in a different bit of routing where two lines where perpendicular (mate) but none the less I couldn't place an elbow because the angle between those 2 perpendicular lines exceeded 90°.


Me thinks this evening will be a good moment for a nice shot of Gentleman Jack.
